Exeter 1-0 Hartlepool & Highlights

Exeter 1-0 Hartlepool & Highlights

Hartlepool's League 2 season continued with a latest setback against Exeter at St James Park on Saturday.

You can quite literally say that Hartlepool 'paid the penalty' at the weekend as a missed spot kick by Pools was punished in injury-time when Exeter secured a one-nil win!

A Tillson foul on Oates had given Hartlepool a penalty, Bingham stepped up but saw his effort saved by Exeter 'keeper Olejnik with the Grecian then winning it in dramatic fashion as Ribeiro (90) secured the points.

These were the match highlights.

The other results at the weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 12th September
Bristol Rovers 0-1 Accrington
Cambridge 1-1 Leyton Orient
Carlisle 2-1 Dag & Red
Exeter 1-0 Hartlepool
Mansfield 4-0 Crawley
Newport 1-2 Morecambe
Northampton 1-0 Oxford Utd
Notts County 3-2 Luton
Portsmouth 3-1 Barnet
Stevenage 2-2 York
Wycombe 1-2 Plymouth
Yeovil 1-1 Wimbledon

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Northampton, Notts County and Plymouth.

Northampton's win against Oxford, in itself, isn't that 'stand out' as such but given the form both had been in during recent weeks, the Cobblers had suffered a string or defeats with Oxford up to fourth heading into the weekend, the one-nil win Wilder secured against his former side is a good one.

Both Notts County and Luton have struggled in the early weeks of the season, with County responded well to a four-one trashing by Morecambe last time round to edge out the Hatters three-two in a five-goal thriller at Meadow Lane.

An early season promotion battle of a game saw Plymouth edge out Wycombe at Adams Park with the Chairboys suffering a rare defeat as the Pilgrims moved up to second behind Leyton Orient with this two-one win.

Who was the Hartlepool Man of the Match in this game? That's what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most in this latest defeat?

Select the Pools name you want from the list in the poll to your right, we're also looking for your thoughts and views too so do share some of those with your comments below.

Hartlepool are back in action this weekend with a League 2 game against Cambridge at the Vic.
